ISLE Introduces the Switch Pro, the World’s Most Rigid Hybrid SUP-Kayak

April 30, 2024

The Switch Pro is 3-4x more rigid than traditional inflatables and allows paddlers to switch between solo or tandem SUP, kayak, and electric-assisted paddling.

San Diego, CA (April 30, 2024)/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – ISLE, the original surf and SUP manufacturer out of San Diego, is excited to announce the latest iteration of their best-selling, award-winning Switch hybrid franchise. The Switch Pro is the world’s most rigid inflatable SUP and sit-on-top kayak, featuring the brand’s patented InfinityFiber material and an innovative turn-key motor mount for installing an electric-assisted propulsion and steering system.

ISLE is leading innovation in the paddlesports industry with groundbreaking technology and designs. Last year, ISLE introduced an entirely new class of inflatables, coined “Inflatable Hardboards,” with their Pro Series models. These were the first models featuring the brand’s exclusive Airtech Pro InfinityFiber, offering up to 400% greater rigidity than traditional inflatables. This year, the brand is excited to pair this innovative technology with the fan-favorite hybrid Switch model for increased performance and rigidity in a hybrid, motor-capable SUP-kayak package.

“The Switch Pro is our first board featuring a custom motor-mount bracket for installing electric motors,” commented VP of Product Jimmy Blakeney. “Our team has worked tirelessly to develop a product that pairs an e-paddling experience – with a pole steering system and trolling motor for effortless handling – along with the portability and convenience of an inflatable, 23-lb board. The Switch Pro is our most rigid Inflatable Hardboard to date, and we’re excited to see how this innovation transforms the paddlesports industry.”

In line with ISLE’s innovative design considerations, the Switch Pro offers intuitive, user-centric features for an optimal, turn-key experience. The Airtech Pro InfinityFiber hardboard construction eliminates the commonly experienced ‘taco effect’ of inflatable watercraft on the water and improves glide, speed, and stability. Additionally, the board’s PowerFuse welded construction technology virtually eliminates air leakage and significantly extends the product’s lifespan. As a result, the Switch Pro includes a 5-year warranty. The Switch Pro includes upgraded portability, including a premium wheelie backpack that fits the ergonomic kayak seat, footrest, ‘click-and-go’ fin system, carbon paddle, and an ultralight leash.

The Switch Pro will be available for direct purchase on April 30th. For more information, visit: islesurfandsup.com.
